Capability Gaps


IFAFRI is publishing Capability Gaps to identify potential areas of R&D where there may be opportunity for industry and academia to develop innovative solutions to support the work of first responders. Further, it is intended to provide them with key data points that will inform their investment decision. Find out more in our Capability Gaps page.
